You don't say how long ago your court date was. If you ever miss a court date, the solution is to show up in court as soon as possible to explain. Later that day or the next day. Most judges will admonish you not to let it happen again and will reset your case. You also should have called your attorney as soon as possible to help you out of this jam. You may very well have to go to jail and post a higher bond to get out, but either way, get yourself to the courthouse ASAP.See question
Last week i was arrested for stealing $104 dollars worth of clothes from Academy. I walked outside and the police were there waiting on me and i admitted to stealing them. I just turned 17 so they charged me as an adult and took me to Williamson c...
If you have no criminal record, Williamson County has a Pretrial Diversion program which allows you to jump through some hoops for a dismissal. You need to be represented by counsel. As to court-appointed attorneys, people have a mistaken notion how that works. In Williamson and most counties, it's all the same lawyers. A lawyer has a private practice with people paying a fee, and they agree to also accept court appointments for people who can't afford a full fee. It's the same lawyers either way. It's really a matter of whether you qualify to get one. Under no circumstances should you plead guilty or go without an attorney.See question
Cps called my probation over false allegations but no criminal charges were filed
I had a client recently who was urinalized by CPS. He was positive for meth. CPS sent the results to his court and his bond was revoked. He was not on probation so the scenario is a little different, but a positive UA doesn't count as a new crime. If he had been on probation he might have been revoked. If CPS investigates something and decides that the allegations are unfounded, then I can can't imagine how you would have violated your probation, but there are lots of violations of probation that don't rise to the level of a new crime. Being in a place you are prohibited from going, for instance. Talk to your PO.See question

If the case is in a municipal court in Laredo, and you live in Round Rock, the warrant won't extend to Williamson County. If it's a Class B or higher (County Court at Law), it would extend that far. Sounds like an old, unpaid ticket. Call the court and make arrangements to pay it. Once the ticket is paid, the warrant will be recalled. If it is in fact an old ticket. If you're pulled over in Webb County with this warrant outstanding, you'll be arrested.See question
My Fiance was arrested on 09/02/2016 in Travis County for two warrants he had in two other counties. Williamson County picked him up on 09/08/2016 in which he was able to see the Magristrate and was advised that they have him listed for BOND FORF/...
I gather that the DWLI is the Williamson County case. He will need to go to jail call in one of the county courts to plead that out to time served, with or without counsel. In Williamson, the magistrate will appoint an attorney if the defendant wants one and and qualifies, which it sounds like he does. Since he has a case pending in Williamson, they won't release him to Nacogdoches until that case is complete, generally. Once that Williamson case is over, then the 10 days starts for Nacogdoches. I'm guessing that the case in Nacogdoches is a felony, as it's rare to see a no-bond for a misdemeanor, especially a DWLI. And if it is a felony and currently a no-bond, the judge is probably unlikely to set a low bond anyway, since either he bond-forfeited on that one too, or it is a Motion to Revoke Probation. So I wouldn't expect him to get out until he completes his case in Nacogdoches. Just guessing, but that's what makes sense.See question
Was arrested for a possession of marijuana in Williamson county, TX. Had about a gram on me and they offered a deal but I'm not able to get it all done because I have no car, I figured my only way is to just do the jail time but when I my public d...
I practice in Williamson County and if they are offering 10 days it means that you didn't want to do the Pretrial Intervention program, which is a diversionary program and results in a dismissal, and you don't want to take deferred adjudication probation either, which does not include a drivers license suspension and can be nondisclosed after completion. Even at that, prosecutors here regularly offer a reduction to a Class C if you take a drug class and get two negative UA's, or they offer time-served, which means you don't serve any more jail time and pay a fine and court costs. There are no public defenders in Williamson County. All of the attorneys who take appointments are private attorneys, so whoever you hire may also be on the appointment list anyway. I'm suspicious of your claim that with no criminal history at all, 10 days is the only offer.See question
P.O.M. >2oz is a class b misdemeanor in TX
Highly unlikely. It's not a traffic offense so nobody is going to tell them. If you are convicted and get a drivers license suspension and try to get an occupational license, they would find out and maybe raise your fees for that.See question

I practice in Williamson County and have never seen anyone revoked to prison for inability to pay, restitution or otherwise. Not saying it couldn't happen, but I've not seen it. If they file a Motion to Adjudicate they would most likely extend your probation to the maximum 10 years, if it isn't already 10 years. If they revoke you to prison, it's most likely that they'll never see another dime, so there's that. Can't tell you what might happen but good luck.See question
Did not know to summit documents of community service to probation officer til the end of term what to expect?
Yes, you violated the terms of probation. But if you actually did do the community service in a timely fashion and merely failed to report it, you might get a break. That's also if you didn't have any other violations. Get a lawyer and let him present the evidence to the prosecutor and probation department.See question
I allowed my underage son be with a girl that is overage, and now I wanna make a report on her. It's been over 2 years
Wow. You say you approved of your underage son "being with" an older girl. I assume your son was 16 or younger at the time and the girl was 19 or older. In Texas, it's not illegal for someone to have sex with someone under 17 if they are within 3 years of each other. If she was older than that, yes, it's sexual assault. But we have to talk about your motive here. It sounds kind of vicious. Why would you do that to someone, especially after 2 years? What does your son think about this? Many prosecutors would look cross-eyed at you for trying to do this, also. Could you be charged with endangering a child? Perhaps.See question
